Buyers warm to ?Retract? knitwear technology
Friday, 06 August 2010
New York - The reception to Australian Wool Innovation?s (AWI) new ?Merino Retract? knitwear technology, which was launched at last month?s SpinExpo trade show in New York, is said to have been very positive.

Garments made from ?Merino Retract? yarns have the attractive look and feel of boiled wool, but have none of the deficiencies of normal boiled wool products. The garments are fully machine washable and have excellent stretch recovery properties, so they don?t suffer from bagging.

AWI general manager of product development and commercialisation Jimmy Jackson said there had been a lot of interest in the ?Merino Retract? technology, which is part of AWI?s Merino Casual autumn/winter 2011/12 collection.
